Man Wrestles Shark – Video

It’s only Monday, but I’m pretty sure 62 year old Paul Marshallsea from Wales is Badass Of The Week. He wrestled a six foot shark which was in shallow waters near paddling kids on an Australian beach.

  • A shark that was not even a danger to the children?

    This is like wrestling a goldfish. The appropriate thing to do would have been to get the kids out of the water and let the shark get on with its business. It would have found its way out past the reef on its own.

    I can’t support this. We damage sharks regularly, we kill millions every year in the name of sport and now this jackass is going to encourage those kids to start abusing wildlife and in Australia, that can be deadly. He should have been arrested.
